Call the fire department. Shooting Guard Jordan McRae is setting the NBA G-League ablaze. His stellar play is putting the NBA community on notice but it has yet to place him in the NBA permanently.
McRae set a G-League record with his 10th straight 30 plus point performance this past weekend. McRae poured in bucket after bucket Saturday en route to a game high 44 points on the day.
In G-League play McRae is currently averaging 31.4 PPG on 48.4 percent shooting from the field, 35.1 percent from three and 84.2 percent from the line.
The 27-year-old Tennessee Volunteer product is still currently searching for a traditional NBA contract and consistent minutes at the NBA level.
In games played under a two-way contract McRae has seen roughly 9 minutes a game in a Wizards uniform. His production in the G-League should earn him more minutes in Scott Brooks’ rotation as the season starts to wind down.
The man has been about a bucket all year and it would be a shame if the Wizards are unwilling to find a bigger role for a player with an effective all-around offensive skillset.
